Shaun, Sheckler, and P-Rod Set to Skate Dew Tour Boston

 

Following a gold-medal-winning performance at the Vancouver Olympics in snowboard halfpipe, Shaun White will now be gunningfor a new title to add to his collection – Skateboarding World Champion. White’s opportunity for his second major accolade of the year will take place at the Dew Tour’s Skate Open, International Skateboarding Federation (ISF) Skateboarding World Championships June 25-26 at Boston’s legendary TD Garden. Highlighting the athlete roster for the Dew Tour’s Skate Open, two-time Olympic gold medalist White immediately switched his focus to skateboarding for the remainder of the 2010 season after claiming his second consecutive gold medal in the men’s snowboard halfpipe competition at the Vancouver Games. Almost as accomplished on the vert ramp as he is in the halfpipe – capturing the 2007 Dew Cup with three straight event titles before taking home an X Games gold medal that same summer – White will be competing at the Dew Tour’s Skate Open – his first skateboarding contest since his recent Olympic snowboarding victory, and his first time competing for the title of Skate Vert World Champion. In addition to White, top skate athletes from around the world will be competing at the Skate Open in both skate park and vert, including defending Dew Cup champion and Skate Vert World Champion, Bucky Lasek. Boston-local Andy Macdonald, up-and-comer Alex Perelson and vert legend Bob Burnquist will also be among those competing at TD Garden against White in a fierce battle for both the Skate Open win and the title of ISF Skateboarding World Champion in the vert discipline. The defending Skate Park World Champion and three-time Dew Cup champion, Ryan Sheckler will look to repeat his World Champion status again in 2010. However, he will have to contend with the likes of Paul Rodriguez, Chaz Ortiz and Greg Lutzka.
